What We Do

The American Cancer Society is a global grassroots force of 1.5 million volunteers dedicated to saving lives, celebrating lives, and leading the fight for a world without cancer. From breakthrough research, to free lodging near treatment, a 24/7/365 live helpline, free rides to treatment, and convening powerful activists to create awareness and impact, the Society is the only organization attacking cancer from every angle.

Interesting Info

Since January 2018 Hope Lodge Nebraska has saved patients and caregivers over $1 million in lodging costs.
Road to Recovery volunteers provided 1480 free rides for patients across Omaha and Council Bluffs in 2018.
Our Omaha office has a wig room open 8:30-5:00pm M-F, to provide free wigs to cancer patients currently undergoing treatment.
